''IVhen a deed is done for Freedom, through the 

broad earth's aching breast 
Runs a thrill of joy prophetic, trembling on from 

east to westy 
And the slave, ivhere'er he coivers, feels the soul 

within him climb 
To the awful verge of manhood, as the energy 

sublime 
Of a century bursts fulj blossomed on the thorny 

stem of Time. 

-;<- -X- -X- ^- 

Neiv occasions teach neiu duties; Time makes 

ancient good uncouth; 
They must upivard still and onward, ivho would 

keep abreast of Truth ; 
Lo, before us gleam her camp-fires ! we ourselves 

must Pilgrims be, 
Launch our Mayfioiver, and steer boldly through 

the desperate wilder sea, 
Nor attempt the Future's portals with the Past's 

blood-rusted key, ' '
